Abstract

This era leads us to a new political development in Africa Ė two issues, namely, xenophobia and terrorism which is the most deadly. During the World War Two, Hitler led us to xenophobic and terroristic battle not in favor of German Jews which led to World war two. In the Cold War Era after World war two, the East (North Atlantic Treaty Group) and the West began xenophobic and terroristic actions against each other globally and this resulted in persons, financial and material catastrophes. Specifically speaking, Africa experiences the greater blunt throughout economic damage and rebellion. In the early years of the 1990s, when the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics disintegrated as a result of Gorbachevís short-sightedness. Africa and the other parts of the globe became free in thinking that global peace has finally dawned. Unfortunately, the fall down of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republic and the demise of the East-West economic, ideological and political conflicts started in the new eve of communal and clannish conflicts. Xenophobia and terrorism took the place of the East and West damage of contenderís concentration in Africa. Presently, Africa stands at the centre of precarious ethnic conflicts leading it to the border of a precipitous rock face of devastations hampering industrial, social, and economic and education developments. This manuscript provides a short logical understanding of xenophobia and terrorism that have terrorized the peace in Africa in particular, and the international community at large in the course of empirical evidence supported by intellectual discussion and the ways to commence peace in Africa.
